Azucenas Group's story

The Azucenas Community Bank will be starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the Villa Exaltación headquarters. This group is comprised of 8 members, and its president is Ms. Rosario. These women have different business, selling things like candy, cakes, natural remedies, stockings, hand-woven sweaters, jewelry, and bricks. One member has an electrician shop.

Ms. Rosario, president of the group, states that she has been a part of the community bank with Pro Mujer for a year. She currently owns a jewelry making business, which she has had for three years. She started this business with her sister.

The loan that is being requested will be used to purchase oxygen, gold, and other tools necessary to make jewelry, which she will sell at different markets. This job allows her to generate the funds she needs to support her family, since she has a live-in partner and a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the training.

In this group: Alicia Cresencia, Martha Fedelia, Claudia, Susana, Rosario, Maria Luisa, Victor Hugo, Guiselda Raquel
